Five of the six models are connected to the world's major cities and feature an exclusive design featuring a massive 47mm Urban Street Wear watch. The Swatch x A Bathing Ape watch with the symbols of London is released in red, New York - gold, the design of the Paris model is made in blue, Tokyo received a camouflage color, Bern - strict black.
“6 limited editions pay tribute to the uniqueness. Gorgeous BAPE patterns and unique designs created from camouflage are the key details of the heritage of the two brands.
Each model of the new collection from Swatch x A Bathing Ape is numbered and released in the amount of 983 or 1993 pieces, which refers to the years of the founding of the Swatch and Bape brands, respectively.
